      Satyam to offer healthcare platform with Oracle's support for telemedicine projects in rural areas

      Posted AtPharmaBiz

      The Hyderabad-based IT major, Satyam Computer Services Ltd is ready to deploy its web-enabled healthcare platform which is built on the Oracle's Healthcare Transaction Base (Oracle-HTB). Oracle has provided this software free of cost to Byrraju Foundation.

      This solution, coupled with telemedicine enables the physician to access the medical records of patients' in remote villages and provide medical consultation, without the doctor having to physically travel to these villages. Consultation is facilitated by a trained health worker at the village end who provides the basic parameters.

      With over 78 per cent of the medical practitioner operating out of cities and towns rural India which is home to over 70 per cent of country's population is deprived of quality medical care. A combination of telemedicine and Oracle HTB which has been customised for primary health care and special interventions such as diabetes, hypertension, school health, mother and child healthcare etc. enables non-resident doctors to provide medical attention at a time convenient to the consultant and patient.

      This solution is initially being deployed in the 150 villages where the Byrraju Foundation, a non-profit organisation is presently working.

      Corporates and non-profit organisations who deploy this solution will have access to a system that enables building patient records, history of illness, patient visit schedules, medicine administration schedule and others that can be customised to suit the requirements of that particular client.

      Doctors and consultants, who may not be present at remote locations, will have complete online access to the patient records and history of illness and can prescribe the right medicines and schedules on the tool itself. The tool will then prompt the field staff to administer the dosage accordingly.

      By using Oracle HTB, the company has ensured that the entire system will comply with the industry required HL7 compliance (Health Level 7). HL 7 is the industry standard for the exchange of clinical data in the hospital environment.

      Commenting on the launch of the platform Ram Mynampati, president, Healthcare and Commercial Businesses said, "The telemedicine platform is an example of utilising technology to reach out to people in remote places. By ensuring simplicity and compliance we have built a robust, system on the tested Oracle HTB platform. This solution is now made available to our several clients in the provider and public health space to enable their remote applications backed with technology."

      Satyam's Healthcare practice has developed unique integrated industry solutions by leveraging its established competencies in public health, pharma, providers and payer space. The company has approximately 1000 associates, globally, dedicated to this practice and seven of the global top ten pharma companies are part of its client base

      The Electronic Health Records solution, from the company's Healthcare practice, will work on Healthcare Partner Financial Application, Healthcare Partner Clinical Application, and Healthcare Partner Administrative Application. This solution will thus enable the company to focus on key healthcare providers across various geographies to cater and exceed the varied needs of providers across the globe.
